What you'll do

This experience of 3 hours is a drawing, sketchbook under the arm, in the Louvre. You will discover much more than a guide can tell you. I want to revive the arts through your pencils so you understand how they were created technically but also according to the means of the time, the historical context and much more !

The program begins with the French sculpture section of the 17th and 18th century to learn the anatomy and proportions of the human body. Then go to the part "painting of the North" to understand the evolution of art and better understand the classicism of French painting where I prepared various exercises of composition, after with colors ! Discover the Louvre as a Palace and your last spot to draw in front of David's immense "Sacre de Napoléon".

I supply all the drawing materials, folding chairs and I offer you a sketchbook ! No experience needed, beginner, intermediate, advanced and even ... passionate levels accepted. This experience that I propose to you is for those who would like to draw, have fun and progress while discovering the Louvre that you will never find with another. Not suitable for children under 7 years old.

-- IMPORTANT -- You have to buy your ticket for the Museum. I recommand you to do it online. All young people under 18 and young people under 26 who are residents of the European Economic Area benefit from free admission.

IF YOU WANT A DISCOUNT :
- group of 2 travelers or more
- kids between 5 and 8 years old.
Contact me by private message ;)

Are you looking for another place in Paris to draw ?
The only day you are in Paris and my experience is not available ?
My experience is too expensive for 3 people?
ask me in private message, anything is possible !

I also propose another airbnb experience called "Be an Artist in Paris" in the medieval district near to the cathedral Notre Dame de Paris and an other one called "be an artist in Montmartre".
Other things to note
You can bring your own art furniture if you want.

Expérience très enrichissante dans un lieu magique. Romain a su faire partager sa passion pour l'art. La démarche de production de croquis était constructive avec de nombreux conseils. Romain était attentif et bienveillant, ce qui m'a permis de me sentir rapidement à l'aise et oser produire malgré les regards extérieurs. Je n'ai pas vu le temps passé et cela m'a donné envie de poursuivre mon carnet de croquis. Ce que J'ai fait en expérimentant les techniques. Merci pour ce beau moment !

It was a special experience in Louvre museum and definitely recommend it for someone who like art. He organized workshop very well that I could keep focus on sketching. he helps your sketch and gives you many tips. He took us some beautiful spots in the museum where I wouldn't find as a tourist. I'll take his class again when I visit Paris again. Thank you!

Uma experiência incrível que recomendo a todos! Romain domina muito o assunto e sua explicação é cativante! Explicou diversas técnicas, contou histórias sobre as obras e foi muito gentil e paciente em me ensinar como deveria fazer as atividades de desenho. Um verdadeiro gentleman! Tenho certeza que essa experiência é excelente tanto para iniciantes quanto para profissionais. Certamente farei de novo na próxima vez que ir a Paris.
